Is it time to consider on-grid home battery storage for your home or business? If you’ve been asking the question, you’re not alone. Here are our top three reasons to consider a solar battery solution.
1. Gain energy security with an on-grid home battery
The year 2020 will never be forgotten, from devastating bushfires to floods and storms, countless communities were left without vital services including power and telecommunications – even those who weren’t directly affected, still experienced lengthy outages. Meanwhile, COVID saw most Australians working from home – many continue to do so. If you experience outages, are working from home, or live in an area prone to bushfires, it may be time to consider on-grid battery storage.
2. The cost of buying an on-grid home battery is coming down
When home batteries first hit the Aussie market a few years ago, early adopters were paying up to 60 per cent more per Watt. This meant the warranty would expire before it could pay for itself. While we’re not quite there yet, battery prices are coming down. We are, therefore, finally closer to breaking even than ever before.
3. An on-grid home battery will save you money and decrease your carbon emissions
So, you’ve installed solar power to your home, which works beautifully when the sun shines. But what happens at night, or when the rain sets in? Installing an on-grid home battery gives you a continual supply of renewable energy. Even when the sun isn’t shining, or the power is out! In turn, this reduces your carbon footprint.
